Mikhail; I don't know what movie period Field's poems cover, but "White
Jungle Queen" could refer to Dorothy Lamour (she of the sarong) who made
several jungle-background movies, such as THE JUNGLE PRINCESS(1936), HER
JUNGLE LOVE(1938) and BEYOND THE BLUE HORIZON(1942). On the other hand, it
might relate to Jane, "wife" of Tarzan, in the MGM/Weissmuller jungle movies
of the 30s and 40s. Serials were very popular during this period, so maybe
White Jungle Queen was the title of a serial.

Subject: Edward Field and the movies


Hello All,

I'm doing some work on Edward Field's poems having to do with movies. I'm
having trouble figuring out exactly which movies he's talking about in some
of the poems in _Variety Photoplays_.  I'm specifically interested in the
following poems:"Sweet Gwendolyn and the Countess," "White Jungle Queen,"
and "Nancy" (which is presumably about the comics character but I'm not sure
if there's ever been a movie based on her). Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Mikhail
